I agree not on the gay part but the part about not being as good part the straps and stuff holding things on are majore weaknes a well placed shot could have gear flying off the poor space marine and way more exsposed areas compered to the original but all in all vary realistik and hay some times you have to give somthing up to look good. I have read about how dificoult it can be to move in heavy armor like they now so I can see wsir your coming from. Forgot about this so I am jaming it in the end but having your servose out on display is like is like wairing a full suit of armor but not wairing the helmet just difeats the hole idea because if I can't kill you shooting your servose os the next best thing
Was reading the other coments about pockets totally agree wair the hek do thay keep it all other than them refering to there power plants as backpacks. I mean realy wair do the assault mareines ceap the melta charges they aparently have in the games and stuff. Sorry if I came off a bit mean no offens intended love your work
I just tried to say that Tau is almost the only race that is quite practical and probably the only one that is really progressing in developement. The fact that they're one of the newest W40K races helps that a lot. Tau are using Exosuits instead of Power Armors because Exo replaces wearers strength with its own instead of augmenting it. Anyone except Ork Nob or a Space Marine will benefit more from Exosuit(if Power Armor and Exosuit have same technological and power levels and sizes). As on a matter of power - orcbruto's Power Armors have much more "serious" layer of artifical muscle than GW versions
I the mythos tactical marines are highly trained and able to move silently with the bulky power armour, it does not impend (?) their movements and as for cover, they're power armouur whilst deflect most bullets. And remember space marines are not human. But i do love your sketches very nice
I really get most of what you have posted here, except for one thing... the tag on the left leg. Is that some federal "Do not remove tag under penalty of law" tag like what they have on mattresses and pillows?
Well, in Warhammer 40k world, this "tags" works as medals and certificate that the armor is working ok, they are called Purity Seals, and are just old papyrus-looking things glued to the armor with something that looks like candle wax
Probably this things get lost and fall from the armor at all times, but Space Marines sometimes have loads of them, all over the armor
